Missions Monday - No More

It's time for Missions Monday.

Every Monday I will introduce you to some great charities that you can get involved in. When I say get involved, I mean you can donate your money, time, and/or pray for these organizations who are doing amazing things to help people.

Today I would like to introduce you to
No More.

From the website:

"NO MORE is a simple idea with the power to unleash new, major  attention to the people all around us who are hurt – directly or indirectly — by domestic violence and sexual assault every day and every minute.  We all know someone who has been touched by this violence but still, domestic violence and sexual assault remain hidden and misunderstood."

The next time you’re in a room with 6 people, think about this:
  • 1 in 4 women experience violence from their partners in their lifetimes.
  • 1 in 3 teens experience sexual or physical abuse or threats from a boyfriend or girlfriend in one year.
  • 1 in 6 women are survivors of sexual assault.
  • 1 in 5 men have experienced some form of sexual victimization in their lives.
  • 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men were sexually abused before the age of 18.

These are not numbers.

They’re our mothers, girlfriends, brothers, sisters, children, co-workers and friends.

You can learn more about this organization and how you can get involved by visiting their website here:

  1. Hi Wendy,
    I love your idea for Mission Monday! As A counselor, I have worked with many children that are part of the staggering statistics of sexual abuse. It amazes me of the God given resilience so many of them possess. Thank you for sharing this with us today.
    Blessings from Still Woods

    1. Thank you so much for your encouragement and the work you do. What a gift. Blessings!
